Frédéric Mitterrand: the funeral of the former Minister of Culture will take place on Tuesday in Paris

The funeral of former Minister of Culture Frédéric Mitterrand, who died Thursday at the age of 76, will take place on Tuesday at the Saint-Thomas-d'Aquin Church in Paris, his family announced to AFP. The mass will take place at 3 p.m. and will be open to the public. A cremation will take place in the following days in the privacy of the family, she said.

Nephew of the former head of state François Mitterrand, minister under President Nicolas Sarkozy and television man, Frédéric Mitterrand died after a fight of “several months against an aggressive cancer”, according to his family. In a press release, the Élysée on Friday saluted “a servant of the State and a great storyteller of the century, who knew how to bring to life the imaginations which constitute us, and which connect us”.

Many political figures have paid tribute to him. He was “a deeply cultured and delicate man, a being apart, sensitive and endearing, an unclassifiable personality so far from partisan life,” praised Nicolas Sarkozy.

A film buff and host of shows like Étoiles et Toils, Frédéric Mitterrand was also a writer. He had created controversy by recounting his sexual and paid wanderings in Thailand and the Maghreb, his “bad life”. He had publicly defended himself from any relationship with minors or from advocating child crime.
